Anthony HopkinsJonathan Franzen's novel 'The Corrections' was the publishing sensation of 2001. It won multiple awards and made its author a household name.

Especially after Oprah Winfrey chose it as one of her Book Club picks and he famously turned down an invitation to appear on her show.

Rumors have swirled for years about possible movie and TV adaptations of the lengthy tome and now there are reports that producer Scott Rudin ('The Social Network,' 'There Will Be Blood') and writer-director Noah Baumbach ('The Squid and the Whale,' 'Margot at the Wedding') are close to a TV series deal with HBO.

According to Deadline, the cable network may soon place an order for a pilot episode.

It's also been reported that none other than Anthony Hopkins has expressed an interest in playing one of the central roles.

Sir Anthony Hopkins Talks 'Idol' on 'Jimmy Kimmel'It's hard to imagine Dr. Hannibal Lecter as an 'American Idol' judge. Sir Anthony Hopkins, the actor known for his serious turns in 'The Silence of the Lambs,' 'Amistad' and 'Nixon' is a huge fan of the show.

"It's like the American dream, isn't it?" he explained after Jimmy Kimmel showed footage of Hopkins cheering on Adam Lambert from the 'Idol' audience. "I want to get on the show and become a judge," he said on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC). "[But] I couldn't be tough on them."

Kimmel was skeptical: "We have Oprah for compassion; we need somebody mean in there."

cinematicalThe folks at our sister site Cinematical are working hard to give you news and reviews of the best -- and worst -- the silver screen has to offer. Here are some of their latest musings on the latest blockbusters, indies, and everything in between:

  • There's a large contingent who believes that the first Hancock wasn't a good idea. Nevertheless, Hancock 2 is in the works. Do you think you'll shell out the cash next summer?
  • Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter is so iconic that it's hard to believe that he wasn't the one who originated the role. Cinematical Seven takes a look at the best sequel replacement actors.
  • Beyonce hasn't exactly had an illustrious film career thus far, but I'm pretty interested in her portrayal of Etta James in Cadillac Records. Cinematical reviews the film and tells you if this Beyonce film is better than the rest.
  • I thought Russell Brand was one of the best parts of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and my aversion to Dudley Moore has prevented me from ever seeing Arthur. Now that Brand is in talks to reprise the role, maybe I'll see what this classic movie is all about.
  • Sure, I watch videos on YouTube, but I've never actually uploaded anything myself. I kind of wonder who it is who spends so much time uploading video after video of their personal moments. The new documentary, I Want My Three Minutes Back, explores the people behind the videos.

Alec Baldwin's directorial debut on Starz

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 17th 2007 8:02AM

alec baldwinAfter a five-year wait, you can finally see the first feature film directed by Alec Baldwin -- on television. In 2001, Baldwin directed The Devil and Daniel Webster, an update of the 1941 film. In Baldwin's version, Daniel Webster (Baldwin) is a writer who sells his soul to the Devil (Jennifer Love Hewitt) in exchange for fame and fortune. Anthony Hopkins also stars in the film.

According to Baldwin, the film, now titled Shortcut to Happiness, was never released in theaters because some of his investors were being investigated for bank fraud. The FBI seized the film, but it eventually wound up back in the hands of producer Bob Yari and will make its debut on Starz on Demand with Baldwin no longer credited as director. If you want to see the film for some reason, it's being packaged along with The Illusionist and Find Me Guilty, so look for it when those two films hit Starz on Demand.
